Eleven Weeks, Eleven Epic Illusions That Get Viewers To "BeLIEve"

Guest Appearances by Shaquille O'Neal, Ice T, Ludacris, Randy Couture and More

New York, NY, Sept 30, 2013 - Criss Angel sets out to confirm that he is the greatest magician of all time in his new weekly series "Criss Angel BeLIEve" which premieres on Spike starting Tuesday, October 15 at 10 PM, ET/PT. Over the course of 11 weeks, Angel will perform epic demonstrations that will feature incredible acts of magic, death-defying escapes, fearless exhibitions and astonishing physical feats that challenge the very laws of nature.

For more than a decade Criss Angel has been revolutionizing the art of magic, and in his new series Angel will take his performance and magic to a whole new level. Each episode will focus on Angel's quest to perform a fresh, bold and mind-blowing demonstration. For the first time in any magic programming, Angel will take viewers "behind the curtain" for an intimate and revealing look at the creative process behind his magic. Viewers will get unprecedented access to Angel's "think tank" where his team brainstorms, debates, constructs and helps him execute the most spectacular magic, illusions and escapes in history.

Angel's career, and in some cases his life, are on the line as he attempts to perform demonstrations never contemplated or successfully attempted, by any magician in history including a real "Bullet Catch," "Cement Grave," "Blindfolded Beam Walk," "Double Straight Jacket Escape" and his most controversial demonstration ever, "Raising the Dead."

Throughout the season Angel will be joined by a number of his friends including Randy Couture, Ice T, Ludacris and Shaquille O'Neal as they witness the impossible, forever questioning their perception of reality.
